LIVERPOOL VS AC MILAN PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Liverpool is quiet in the transfer market and only focuses on renewing contracts with the pillars. They can be completely confident in the quality of the squad they have. 3 wins and 1 draw against Chelsea in the new tournament, Liverpool has got 9 goals and only received 1 goal. This shows the strength of this team when full of talented guys.
When Van Dijk returned, he immediately promoted his leadership role. The defense certainly helped Liverpool to deploy a leisurely controlling play. However, it must be admitted that their scoring performance is no longer in top form. Jurgen Klopp is also more cautious, especially in the matter of receiving lessons from the injury storm last season. With what has been shown before, it is not surprising that the upcoming match is tight and few goals are scored.
In the most tumultuous season in history, Stefano Pioli helped Liverpool win Serie A runners-up and a place in the Champions League after an eight-year absence. They won 24/38 matches with 74 goals and received only 41 goals. The attack is not so good, but the defense is really different. The pragmatic playing style is becoming the identity of AC Milan under coach Pioli.
In the last 8 matches in Serie A, they only received 1 defeat and kept a clean sheet in 7 matches. Giroud’s injury will affect the team’s attack power, but the Rossoneri have the most powerful force in the remaining lines. The 2-0 victory over Lazio last weekend also showed the old age of AC Milan. Although facing the highest-rated Liverpool in Group B, AC Milan will not easily give in.
The quite similar pragmatic competition is making the talent door an adventure. AC Milan’s last 5 away matches did not have more than 2 goals scored. The last 8/9 matches of Liverpool at home also have similar statistics.
Select: Under 2.75 FT.
Liverpool can be confident in the quality of their squad as well as their outstanding head-to-head record. The Kop has won 3 wins in 4 confrontations. In particular, it must be mentioned that the legendary night of Istanbul 2005 brought the Champions League championship. While AC Milan has returned to this prestigious playground for 8 years. Last season they also stopped early in the third round of the Europa League.
Liverpool’s form is extremely impressive, with Chelsea and Man Utd at the top of the Premier League. Not only that, but they are also gaining momentum with 5 victories after the last 7 matches at Anfield. On the other side of the field, AC Milan also got a good start in Serie A, but that was not enough to stop the Red Brigade.
Select: Liverpool FT.
